Mobley Family Plantation in the 1800s?

Hello! Is anyone aware of any Mobley Plantations in York County or the surrounding counties in mid-1800s? I'm trying to find information on my Great-great grandfather Lemrick "Lem" Mobley he could have been born around 1869 and died around 1892. My Great-great grandmother he married was a Garvin so maybe there could have been a Garvin plantation nearby as well because she was a slave in her youth. I can't find him on any censuses, and I have a hunch he may have been on the 1890 census, but since it got destroyed, I'm left to wonder. According to all my family members, he was fathered by a white man. However, since he died so young, we don't know anything about his family including his mother or potential siblings. Therefore, I'm assuming his father was a slave owner. Any information or assistance would be gladly appreciated.
